Video of the day: a black hole swallows the planet


At a distance of about 47 million light-years away in a galaxy called NGC 4845, located in the constellation Virgo, suddenly woke up, “hungry” black hole that swallowed with a big appetite object that exceeds the size of the gas giant Jupiter 30 times.

The above video created by experts of the European Space Agency, shows how this unexpected event happened. Initially, the phenomenon has been noticed by the International Gamma-ray observatory INTEGRAL. Scientists have just watched the various galaxies and suddenly saw a bright glow in X-rays. They were able to determine the nature of this phenomenon through a telescope XMM-Newton. It should be noted that black holes are one of the ten most bizarre things in the universe .

The study was published in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics, and the study’s lead author Marek Nikolayuk of Bialystok University, said that the last 20-30 years in this galaxy dominated by peace and quiet. According to scientists, the mass of the resulting black hole at 300,000 times the mass of the Sun.

It should be noted that for the first time scientists were able to see how a black hole destroying a star unlike the space object. According to them, the black hole only “nibbled” object, absorbing only the outer layers, which make up about 10 percent of the total mass. The dense core of the object is likely still revolves around the black hole. Now you can imagine what would happen if the solar system starts up a black hole .
